Our benefits

Flexible work hours

Reutlingen University offers its staff flexible working hours and home office formats, as well as the general option to work part-time. In addition, certain staff groups have the possibility to take an (unpaid) gap year.

Reconciling work & family

We support you in reconciling work and academia with family obligations. This includes a family-conscious university policy, individual solutions to the challenges of dual careers, flexible childcare options - including holiday periods - and further training opportunities for carers.


Promoting female scientific staff

Reutlingen University is excellently connected with numerous foundations, initiatives and companies that are committed to the qualification of female management staff and the reconciliation of academic activities and family life.

Continuing education & training

The professional and personal development of our employees is an important concern. That is why we support you with various on-site training and continuing education measures. Those interested can also apply for an (inter)national staff exchange through our Erasmus programme.

Colourful campus life

Recurring concerts, festivals and events are an integral part of our university culture. Sometimes these events are festive, sometimes casual. But regardless of whether or not there are cheerleaders to support our schools, food trucks, beer benches and the like - our university calendar always has some highlights in store.

Benefits of the civil service

In addition to a secure job, the German civil service offers a number of staff benefits: renumeration according to "TV-L" (Public Sector Collective Agreement on Länder) with a company pension programme and bonuses, insurance benefits (e.g. liability or car insurance), public transport subsidies, discounts on meals in refectoryies and cafeterias, and more.



Promoting female scientific staff

The Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard Foundation, founded in 2004, is dedicated to supporting the scientific careers of women with children. The foundation's offers target (post-)doctoral students in the natural sciences and medicine. Within the framework of a scholarship, they receive financial support to relieve the strain of domestic tasks and childcare. This makes it easier for them to conduct scientific research at a high level.
